Overview

About the property

Lovely 1 bedroom apartment for up to 4 to sleep. Close to the Royal Mile

Lovely 1 bedroom apartment for up to 4 to sleep. Unlimited Wi-Fi internet access. Walking distance to the Royal Mile and very close to the city centre.

In the apartment can sleep 2 people in the bedroom, but can easily accommodate 2 more guests in the big and comfortable sofa bed located in the living room area.

Edinburgh Abbeyhill apartment is a stylish self-catering, first floor, one-bedroom apartment perfect for holidays or business trip stays. It is located at only few minutes’ walk from the Queen’s Palace, the Scottish Parliament and the very famous and historical Royal Mile. At the same time it is located in a quiet cul de sac with free on street car parking and pedestrian access to the magnificent Holyrood Park, Arthur’s Seat and the St Margaret's Loch: beautiful scenery you won’t easily forget about!

Only few minutes walking and you will be immersed in the beautiful historical Royal Mile that goes from the Queen’s Palace right up to the Edinburgh Castle.

Frequent buses will take you to the main touristic destinations and shopping streets, with the nearest bus stop being only 2-3 minutes away and Princess Street at about 10-15 minutes by bus. Night buses will take you home from the city centre too.

The apartment is fully equipped with everything you may need for an enjoyable stay while visiting the beautiful city of Edinburgh: from the comfort of gas central heating programmable system, to a fully equipped kitchen and cooking accessories, linen and towels provided inclusive in the price, and of course unlimited Wi-Fi internet access, so staying in contact with your friends and family, sharing online your experiences whilst enjoying your favourite internet radio will be easy and at the touch of a button of your portable device.

In the apartment you will find a 32” flat TV connected up to a DVD player, kitchen tools, plates, cutlery, cooking pots etc., complimentary towels, bed linen, hairdryer, iron/ironing board, comfortable double bed and a sofa that can be converted in double bed. You will also have at your disposal microwave, kettle, toaster, Italian coffee machine, electric fan oven, gas hobs and fridge.

A big supermarket with pharmacy open 7 days a week and a cash machine are only 5 minutes away.

Why going to a hotel, when you could stay in an apartment and enjoy the privacy and “home feeling” that this can provide, also saving money that you could spend around the town?

As the apartment owner, most of the times it will be myself or my wife to welcome our guests: we are very friendly, most of the times can accommodate late arrivals without extra charges, and can provide tips and help on getting to the apartment from the airport or train station, travelling around the city, local touristy attractions and any other queries you might have before and during your staying.

About Mario Chiurato

I'm an Italian guy who has been living in Edinburgh since the year 1998, and I love this vibrant and very historical city! I like to provide my customers the best service possible, when they stay in my properties. This means being flexible with their requests as much as possible. I speak Italian, English and Spanish, and with a little help from Google Translate I can adventure myself in other languages too!

Mario Chiurato purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Mario Chiurato chose Edinburgh

LOCATION LOCATION! You will be minutes away from the notorious Royal Mile. At the same time, the beautiful Arthur's Seat former volcano is less than 5 minutes away: a must walking experience for every visitor of the city of Edinburgh (amazing views of the city from the top).

What makes this apartment unique

Again, LOCATION LOCATION: only minutes away from the historical Royal Mile, the Queen's Palace and the Scottish Parliament.

At the same time, the apartment is located in a quiet cul de sac, so away from the noises of the city centre. On street parking is available too, if you were planning to visit the city by car.

Very nice, clean apartment

  • 4 of 5

Mario was super to work with. He forwarded me a ton of information including transportation options around the city. Very easy access and the apartment was spotless. Bathroom was very updated as well. It was not as close to the Royal Mile as we would have hoped but it was easy enough to get a cab or an Uber ride.

Not really impressed

  • 1 of 5

The apartment we selected online was not the one we were given as it was a last minute change by the owner. First impressions of the apartment we very sketchy, we almost did not want to get out of the taxi (car with 4 slashed flat tires out front, lots of graffiti in the area and a garbage bin overflowing with trash outside the front door).

Apartment was ok, quite old. Found crisps and hair clips in the living room carpet. YUCK

Disapointed, sorry, will not use again

Great location to explore Edinburgh from!

  • 4 of 5

My stay was toward the end of August for 3 nights. I'd never been to the UK or Scotland before, and found this a great place to explore Edinburgh from. While the bus lines are handy... I just happened to walk everywhere I went. (Except to and from the train station I took a taxi because of my luggage.) I walked to Holyrood House, Parliament building, Edinburgh castle, Carlton Hill, St Giles Cathedral, etc. While it is “uphill” walking all the way to Edinburgh Castle, at least at the end of the day when you are tired, it is all “downhill” to get back to the apartment! Many places to eat & shop along the Royal Mile! The view at the end of the street of the apartment once you enter Holyrood Park is absolutely amazing! I was initially surprised to see all of the people with their dogs… but it made sense that it was a perfect place to bring them to play! I found the apartment itself to be quite nice, and it is located in a quiet neighborhood. I felt the bed was comfortable, the apartment was super clean, and just a nice, relaxing place to be after walking around all day. Mario made sure that I knew to give them a call anytime if I needed anything.

Good location from bottom of Royal Mile and a place to put your head down at night

  • 2 of 5

Mario was kind during all his contact with us and the flat was clean when we arrived.

Unfortunately we did seem to have a few problems which Mario did offer to try to sort, but as we were only there for 2 nights, we didn't want to sit in and wait for these things to be done, we wanted to go and explore.

We noticed a strong smell of stale smoke in the flat which they had tried to cover up with numerous air freshners. By the end of our stay, we decided it wasn't the flat which smelt, but the communal stairwell which seemed to seep into the flat, unfortunately.

We had problems with the flush of the toilet and had to lift the cistern and pop the flush back up each time. Mario arranged a plumber for after we left. The fridge did not work, neither did the light bulb in the bathroom.

We found the bed rather uncomfortable and there was a street light outside the bedroom window with only office style blinds to block it out. It is quite close to the train line and you could hear the trains but they didn't run all night.

This flat is a great base to explore Edinburgh all day and crash in the evenings and I think we were unlucky with our experience; this all sounds rather negative, but we just thought it was important to give an honest review. We don't think it is a normal, true reflection of the standard Mario aims to maintain in his property.

Great Location, Safe and Spotless

  • 5 of 5

We're a retired couple who travel quite a bit. We were very pleased with this location -- it's two blocks from the London Road bus route, which takes you anywhere in Edinburgh. The apartment itself is in a secure, but "non-touristy" section of the city, so guests can get a more genuine feeling for daily life, and still hit the tourist spots. It's quiet and safe, and the Royal Mile is 6 minutes away by bus. Everything inside was spotless and comfortable. We'd absolutely stay here again if we came back to Edinburgh.
